I think this goes along with “bulk cooking”!? When you do buy that upright freezer, to put all of your food in, make sure that it is NOT a “frost free” one! Most people make this mistake! It will dry up EVERYTHING and you will have “frost bite” and will have to throw a lot of food away! And, it runs all of the time. It defrosts itself with a heater! The new freezers dont build up ice the way that they used to do. I think that is because of the super insullation. I dont have to defrost it but once a year & sometimes not even then! And, you can keep bread in them for 6 months!
